Habanos S.A. marketing director Ana Lopez told the media since it was first launched about a year ago Behike has been considered the most exclusive Cuban cigar of all times.
Cohiba Behike marks up that characteristic and can be found in the BHK 52, BHK 54 and BHK 56 sizes for a price higher than average, when one Cuban cigar of any other brand can cost more than 50 Euros in Europe.
The Behike production is extremely limited. Its blend, for the three sizes, includes for the first time medio tiempo leaves that provide the cigar with unique character and flavor, Lopez said.
Behike is the fourth Cohiba brand; the other three are Clasica, 1492 and Maduro, all of them are made at El Laguito factory in Havana.
Cohiba Behike BHK 52 topped Cigar Aficionado magazine's annual list of the best cigars in the world published by the end of 2010.
The magazine described the cigar as an incredibly rich and delicious cigar that enhances the reputation of the Cohiba brand and adds that it is the best Cuban cigar produced in a long time.
According to the publication, 2010 can be considered the year of Cuban cigars with the launching to the market of novelties delighting experts and aficionados, although none of them is as strong as the new Cohiba.
